While not all the “vanned” end up dead, most do, as borne out by our year-end FOIA reports. But even if death is not the ultimate result, the above are victims nonetheless, suffering painful injuries – in the case of the bleeders, pulmonary hemorrhage – so that some men may gamble, others chase pots of gold. (For any new confirmed deaths during the week, please see our running annual list.)

  1. Patrick, I am a horse lover, and a lover of the sport
    Over 45,000 people who drive cars have already died this year on our highways
    Take up a crusade to stop people from driving and buying cars, you will save more lives to the 100th power

    • Who cares they had a CHOICE … john. You are comparing apples to oranges. Horses don’t need to die for this old timey corny bullshit. Go bet on people.

      • You’re Absolutely right, Bonnie!
        The horses are innocent , intelligent , sentient beings.
        Humans are far from innocent and have the choice to drive, speed, drink , do drugs etc.
        The true reason for the ” crusade” , at least to me is that choice. Horses are FORCED into a miserable life of servitude.

    • John Busco: We get it. You don’t get it. You can’t honestly love horses and love the fact that human beings in the horse racing industry willfully and maliciously use and abuse horses for their own selfish greed and cheap thrills. Since you are okay with the ABUSE, BRUTALITY and CRUELTY to horses for racing and wagering, you don’t honestly love horses. You love the cheap thrills you get!!!!
